Name: 重生似水青春 ("Reliving My Youthful Days" ... I'm totally making that up since no one has) Raw Link: https://www.uukanshu.com/b/73605/ NU Link: N/A Genre: Seinen, Slice-of-Life, Romance Why It Should Get Picked Up: This time for real, I think this is worth picking up. I've at least read ahead to Chapter 60 raws It's a clean, simple, hyper-realistic, second-chance nostalgia novel of time-travel back to 2001 when the MC was age 18. No isekai, no System superpowers, no OPness, no loli, nada. Pretty much slice-of-life. Which is exactly what would happen if YOU went back to your childhood and tried to responsibly change the past for the people that mattered to you. That's INCREDIBLY refreshing. This novel is ranked #2 all-time on Qidian's "Modern-day" genre recommendations ... almost 12 million recs. Written 2018. Yes, again I know the odds of translating something currently on Qidian is pretty low. Just thought this was worth recommending. Translators note - Work doesn't seem that difficult. Writing is clean, sentence structures are easy enough - Currently 796 chapters, still ongoing - Chapters are about 2000 characters/words each, not too long, no excessive exposition, nonsensical conversations or other attempts to make word counts. - Very Asia-specific pop-culture references (up to Chapter 60 at least), suggest adding links for readers. Description: ---------- An earnest-but-average man in his 30s (yea yea I know I've used this line many times, but that's just how most Chinese protagonists are) Shen Da Peng laments about his life choices after a high-school reunion when he inevitably meets Truck-kun. And so starts the MC's adventure into the past as he tries to correct his life and the people he cares for. But he starts realizing the difficulty of the task ahead and the need for caution due to the butterfly-effect. The writing is detailed and realistic, just what you'd imagine when a mature 30-something yr old time travels and has to change history despite not being a genius/having any resources. Plot moves along fairly quickly day-by-day. Nostalgia nostalgia nostalgia, like the kdrama "Reply" series, or IRAS. No excessive references since MC is not trying to supplant future entertainers (as far as Chapter 60 at least), although you can easily lookup YouTube videos for some of the pop-culture references. MC is from my generation, which is why I really enjoy reading this.
